G is for Goals #AtoZChallenge

G is for Goals

As the A to Z Challenge continues some of my goals for the days, weeks and months to come are starting to be clearer. I did do a guest post on the subject of my goals earlier this year. Due to some not so positive things happening in my personal life since the beginning of the year, I have not been able to concentrate fully on those resolutions.

Now, it is time for me to refocus on my goals, set new ones and more forward!

  • Blogging
    • A to Z Challenge
      • finish the challenge without stress and with a post per day
      • reply to all of those lovely comments, sorry I am behind
      • visit as many new blogs as I can, (I have realised that very often I cannot read more than 3-4 posts in a row)
      • leave many comments, likes and share on twitter, follow new blogs
    • Guest posting
      • have the possibility to do some guest posts in 2016
      • have more guests for Discovering Traditions, more on that here, so do you have a tradition to share?
    • Interviews and profiles
      • I have always enjoyed doing interviews, and trust me I have interviewed a a lot of people (musicians, European officials, ambassadors, journalists). Thus I would like to start doing interviews with bloggers, writers, artists, entrepreneurs on my blog, if you are interested, then let me know
      • I will soon start doing little profiles, of blogs or Instagram accounts, small businesses, I have one coming up in May, which in a way is a commissioned job for my sister 🙂
    • Take my blog to the next level
      • my blog is a quite time consuming hobby, that I treat as more than just a hobby, thus I am eying ways to monetise (affiliation, sponsors), without my blog loosing it’s soul, it would actually enable me to focus a bit more on blogging
      • maybe self-hosting will be a future step, but that one scares me
  • Writing
    • Write regularly for my blog
    • Work on my book that I started for NaNoWriMo
    • Work on my collection of short stories
  • Art
    • Continue painting regularly – you might have noticed that many of my A to Z posts have been accompanied by a water colour painting
    • get my hands a bit dirty with other forms of art (sculpting, charcoals etc)
  • Work
    • German lessons
      • Finally do my German lessons page in English for this blog…
      • Start teaching on skype
      • Find more students /be found by them – tell people that I am looking for students at the moment
      • Look into doing online courses that I can record in advance (that will be after A to Z)
    • Writing (yes it has been mentioned above, but this is work related writing)
      • write for clients – find clients/be found by clients
      • look into freelance journalism gigs
  • Other things
    • Spend a lot of time with my daughter, now that she is starting to water paint herself we have a new activity we share
    • Spend a lot of quality time with S
    • Have some amazing family moments

Now, this is probably only a very small portion of my goals, but it is already long enough…

During the month of April, I am participating in the A to Z Challenge, my theme is authenticity and eclecticism, which in my book go hand in hand.

    1. Ah the scary ones are there so that I know that I should do them, but those are generally avoided for as long as possible, I guess that’s not the best way to go about it.


    1. Ah maybe then I should let that manuscript rest longer and move on to a new project, might be better. 7 blogs?! that is a lot of A to Z posts that you’ll have to do…
      I guess you are a freelance writer? Do you have any advice in that field?


I won't bite, seriously!
